    Help with list and embeding applications

    Hi all, i'm making some custom skin files, working right now on Game skin; it consist in load a custom list with .lnk files (shortcut of the games)
    so it will list all the shortcuts of games.
    But i have some problems:
    - is possible to block the path of a list? i mean exactly like music and video, so is possible to go on sub folders but not up
    - is possible to run an apllication embed like applications list do? (with notepad, and calc) with a dinamic button so one button for run the element embed

    This is the code i use right now for the list:
    SD,00,03,22,22,"C:\Giochi","*.lnk*",
    IL,DL,RGBFF00FF,RGBcfcfcf,,2,70,50

    Thanks to all that have read

    answer to 1st question is of course... reading the history.txt helps...
    (i know, if you dont know what to look for its really hard... even i have to figure it out every time, and i wrote it)

    OPTIONS: "OPT_LOCKROOT" - prevents browsing upwards from the
    directory supplied in path argument

    example:
    SD,00,00,32,32,"C:\Giochi","*.lnk",False,"OPT_LOCK ROOT","",""

    see in history: 2/4/2011


    your second quesiton is yes too...

    you could make a button load the selected item in the list

    "load;game.skn;;$LISTPATH$$LISTTEXT$;windownam e"

    like that... look at the load command...

    windowname is going to be hopefully the same...
    -Thanks

    thanks so much mitch, i'm going to read it asap; i've read the object txt and saw some example, is still hard for me to figure out how to make a variable / register an event and make also simple commands... the relased skins helps alot without them i think i was not able for example to make a button with multiple commands

    update:
    -I 've read the history but it stops at:
    12/5/2010
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    # Fixed Skin Editor Crash when deleting all items on screen

    -I've also testet the line you've make but i can't get it to work, i can still change directory from "C:\Giochi" to "C:\"
    -About the load command the problem is exactly the window name because i have a list of for example 10 games, every game has its window name (Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and so on) there isn't a way to make the window parameter dinamically?
    Thanks again, i'm trying to make a skin for games on list with on right an image example

    i have make something using some examples, i will use a txt file for list:
    - path of the game and window name
    - name label on list
    - icon of the game

    for example:
    LSTC:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Fruit Ninja HD - PC\FruitNinja.exe;Fruit Ninja||Fruit Ninja
    ICO$SKINPATH$ICONS\MENUS\GAMES\Fruit Ninja HD\fruitninja.PNG

    The list works, i can see Fruit Ninja and his icon, the command i used is CLLOAD

    The problem is that i don't know how to get the path on the text file "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Fruit Ninja HD - PC\FruitNinja.exe;Fruit Ninja"
    so i'm stuck here.. the command for now is: load;external_application.skin||RUN;--variable of the path in text file--"

    some one got the solution?

    1st history stops? what does that mean... are u using a riderunner from this YEAR, not 2010!!! best get latest!!

    assuming the latest

    in you example there

    $LISTTEXT$ would contain the selected item in your case "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Fruit Ninja HD - PC\FruitNinja.exe"
    so

    Code:
    load;external_application.skin;;$LISTTEXT$;windowname
    thats all u need

    but, windowname... for embedding that could be tricky


    learn by using SKINTOOL!!!
    -Thanks

    Thanks! it works! but applications doesn't embed i will try to fix
    you mean use RRSkinEditor? because i'm using right now notepad and the object.txt list; i can't understand much RRSkinEditor but i think to learn it if i whant to fix problems like this without help..

    now it works, i used "load;external_application.skin;;$LISTTEXT$" and in the file "LSTPath;Window Name||Label"

    ahhh i got it, didn't knew about skintool never saw it before, i fell a bit ignorant
    anyway it works right now i had to add on list the "path;windowname" i had before only the path that's why it wasn't embed

    now for install games (for put them on list) i will make a decent tool in vb or vbscript that will let select the game, locate the exe and upload "gamelist" and ofcourse the same tool will let unistall the game (phisically or only from list)
